kent, originally uploaded by jahansell.

Sharon, as you know by now, doesn't have much of a business district. We have lots (read: about a dozen) of little shops, but nothing that would draw tourists and weekenders to walk around town. Now even the pizza shop is closing and up for sale, leaving us with a grand total of zero restaurants. Would somebody PLEASE come open up a nice coffee shop/breakfast and lunch place?
Meanwhile, an excellent alternative is Kent. It's about 20 minutes south, and has dozens of wonderful bakeries, bookstores, shops of all kinds - I'd have to guess close to 100 retail establishments of one kind or another. Kent has its share of celebrities too, by the way - Lynne Redgrave and Patti Lupone both live here!

You are being kind in saying Sharon "doesn't have much of a business district."

Heck, even Amenia has a few places to have lunch. You know things are bad when the only eatery in town is the hospital cafeteria, Alas, Sharon does not appear to be very business-friendly.

If I were going to open a restaurant, I would consider other locales. Although word on the street is that there has been some activity lately at the former Country Corner diner, so maybe there is some hope.

I don't know if you meant to ask this question of the person who owns the bookstore - I just put a picture of it on my blog - I'm not the owner and have no information about it! Sorry!
